The Pioneer Woman: black Heels to Tractor Wheels

The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond

The summary is from Goodreads:

"That's when I saw him—the cowboy—across the smoky room."

I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt . . . and I was completely powerless to stop it.

Read along as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strife—and manure—than I ever could have expected.

This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet.

It's the story of a cowboy.

And Wranglers.

And chaps.

And the girl who fell in love with them.


The Pioneer Woman reads like a perfect romantic comedy , or perhaps a fairy tale with a good does of reality. This book is for those out there that think life no longer holds fairytale romances. Granted Ree's life was not all wonderful but even in the tragic moments , she showed that you have to find yourself again , and make yourself get up and go . Ree shows the very human side of the Pioneer Woman that we have all grown to love . Her book highlights all the insecurities a woman could ever feel and makes them bearable. I truly loved the way Ree described her husband Marlboro Man, after reading her description how could one not fall in love with a wonderfully dreamy cowboy. I gave " The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" 5 stars and highly recommend it to all that need a bit of romance and a healthy dose of laughter. Thanks Ree for reminding us that sometimes you have to wade through the manure in order to smell the roses.
